president obama says it will take a few more years. a few more years for the u.s. to solve its economic problems. tonight he will tout his so-called promises kept over the past four years at the democratic national convention. a celebration of failure. that's what mitt romney called it. did he keep his promises -- obama that is. why should his contract be renewed as president clinton said last evening. speaking about president clinton and his fine speech last night, tonight we have to take a look at something he said last evening. take a listen. >> when times are tough and people are frustrated, angry, hurting and uncertain, the politics of constant conflict may be good. but what is good politics does not necessarily work in the real world. unfortunately the faction that now dominates the republican party doesn't see it that way. they think government is always the enemy. they are always right and compromises weakness. >> it's good advice that the politics of cooperation are better than the politics of conflict. it has not happened under president obama in washington, d.c. which leads m

in charlotte, north carolina. democrats have renominated president barack obama after a long and electrifying nomination speech by the former president, bill clinton. >> he answered the attacks last week made in tampa, and plenty of attacks of his own. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president's re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. it went something like this, we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. now, but they did it well, they looked good, they sounded good. they convinced me that they all love their families and their children, and were grateful they had been born in america. really, i'm not -- they did. and this is important. they convinced me they were honorable people who believed what they said. we just have to make sure the american people know what those commitments are. because in order to look like an acceptable reasonable moderate alternative to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back t

with michelle obama and tonight's speakers have been clearly trying to continue to push romney and tonight particularly with sandra fluke, to push romney to push him to the extremes on cant rasept whereon and social issues that affect women. right now, that's working for obama. you know, people like to take about, well, there is a gap with men, that romney leads on. but i think the obama people figured out, they can keep the gap with women and hispanics and to keep forcing that out. don't let romney close it, which they may have been worried about, with the ann romney speech. i think some of this is a reaction to that. >> you point out, the man we saw on stage, jim sin gel, speaking about business and the way forward. brit, tonight, we have elizabeth warren, the senate candidate in massachusetts and then leading in to president clinton. what do you expect from both speeches? >> well, elizabeth warren's speech has been... put out. i have seen it. i don't think it will surprise anyone. she, like sandra fluke, will be a big hero and a big -- will get a big boost from this audience. it's what
